That burger is so “très Brooklyn.”That’s what all the hipster French kids are apparently saying these days as they drop the pretense tht American food is for fatties and flock to the new, American food carts on the streets of Paris, according to The New York Times.
To be “très Brooklyn” means it’s a “particularly cool combination of informality, creativity and quality.”
Food trucks such as the Cantine California, which serves tacos stuffed with organic meat, and Le Camion Qui Fume, which serves $13 burgers, are a new novelty in France, where American classics like Bloody Marys, cheesecake, bagels, and burgers are now seen as hip.
The invasion of food trucks follows the recent trend of American chefs heading restaurants in Paris. Daniel Rose of Spring, Kevin O’Donnell of L’Office and Braden Perkins of Verjus are just a few who have taken over the French restaurant scene.
The misconception that all Americans eat is McDonalds seems to be fading.
